Absorption & Diffusion: The Essentials of Acoustics

FRACON_MayBlog2_AcousticEngineer_FortLauderdaleFL-

Why You Need an Acoustic Engineer for Your Studio, Venue, or Business

The acoustics of a room can make or break the experience inside. If you’ve ever been inside a cathedral, you’ve witnessed how crisp the sounds are and how choral voices float through the air yet the initial sound resonates for many seconds.  On the flip side, we’ve all been in restaurants that were so loud that we couldn’t hear what our friends were saying. A space like that could have used the help of an acoustic engineer.

If you’re a musician with a recording studio, or if you’re building a theater or venue, you’ll also need optimal acoustics for musical purposes. As an acoustic engineer based in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and beyond, we’ll share what acoustic treatments achieve and how they will improve your establishment’s sound. Learn more below!

3 Incredible Things You Can Do with Home Automation

3-incredible-things-you-can-do-with-home-automation

Enrich Your Fort Lauderdale Lifestyle with an Automation Installation  

What’s the difference between smart home control and home automation? Well, smart control lets you access and activate all your technology from your system’s app or through a voice assistant. Automation takes your technology a step further by starting on its own. Without telling your system to do anything, your lights, thermostat, and more will know what to do at the precise time, adjusting based on your preferences and schedules. 

So how does home automation play into real life? As technology experts, Frangioni Media performs custom automation installations in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and cities worldwide. We’ll share exciting ways smart technology will enhance your routine below.

How to Get Stunning Sound for Your Home Theater

Surround Sound: How It Works & Why It’s Superior 

In film, sound is just as integral to storytelling as the visuals. Try to imagine Jaws without its signature ‘dun-dun,’ Harry Potter without its heartwarming theme, or The Breakfast Club without the classic fist-pump to ‘Don’t You Forget About Me.’ Whether it’s spaceship sound effects or explosions in World War II, quality audio makes immersion ten times better and is the epicenter of a world class home theater. 

So, if you’re interested in home theater services for your Los Angeles, CA, home, be sure to make audio a priority too. While a soundbar or internal speakers may seem like enough, you’ll be greatly depriving yourself of a cinematic experience. Learn how surround sound works and what you’ll need below.

Our Tips for the Best Recording Studio Design in Miami, FL

When planning to include a professional recording studio in your home (as most serious musicians do), the room you choose may affect the way your studio needs to be designed.

If You’re an Artist in L.A., See How Management Will Take You to the Next Level

You’ve recorded songs to fill an EP or LP plus made a music video or two. You know you have the skills to ‘make it’ as a musician. You’re on the lineup at local festivals, albeit your name is in small print near the bottom. You have a lot to be proud of, but do you or your band still feel stuck trying to break into the music industry?

While it’s possible to DIY with Soundcloud and Spotify, it takes a team, led by a manager or artist development professional to get your songs known across the country and ultimately internationally. Even Justin Bieber, who got his start on YouTube, became a star when he partnered with industry icon Scooter Braun, his manager. Is it time for you to work with an artist development professional and/or manager? If you’re serious about a music career, the answer is yes.

If you’re unsure of what either a manager or artist development pro can do for you, we share the ins and outs of the partnership below. Continue reading to see how David Frangioni’s music career services will help you thrive in Los Angeles, CA, and throughout the world.
